Cloud adoption is accelerating. Organizations are interested in realizing the benefits of the cloud – flexible cost models, rapid implementation, high availability, and performance – but want to do so in a manner that prioritizes security. IT Pros, particularly those in security, must focus on how they can support cloud adoption while mitigating risks and upholding proper controls. In order to do this, they must evaluate potential cloud providers’ security and risk posture. Forrester Research’s “Enabling the Secure and Rapid Adoption of Cloud Services” looks at common criteria for evaluating the security of cloud providers and the technical and process changes IT Pros should anticipate as they move to the cloud. This whitepaper also offers insights on how to develop a multi-layered approach to data security in the cloud.
